← ‘How do atheists find meaning in life?’

The correspondent was blunt: “Why don’t you atheists just go out and kill yourselves right now?”

Even if atheism really did lead to total nihilism, why would we kill ourselves over that? It's not like we'd have some obligation to follow our beliefs to their natural conclusion out of logical consistency or whatever, we're nihilists remember, we don't recognize obligations!
